From my first visit, I saw how thorough Dr. Banker is by all the tests he did on my eyes. He walked into the room already having reviewed the tests and explained everything to me. The next appointment was scheduled and again after testing, he knew what had to be done to my eye and explained with diagrams so I could understand it all. He did surgery on my eye for Pars Plana Vitrectomy and Membrane Peel just a few days ago. At this point, his timeline of recovery is exactly how my vision is returning. Beyond the call of duty, he called the night before surgery, explained everything again, and reassured me that all would be fine. It was so comforting to know how much Dr. Banker cares about his patients to give that phone call prior to surgery the following morning. He is so precise in his explanations, caring and comforting to his patients.

Dr Banker has great credentials and the office staff are lovely. He is quick and efficient, I might say brusque. I was treated successfully and painlessly for wet macular degeneration for a year before moving from New York. My first treatment by Dr Banker left me with broken blood vessels around each injection site (both eyes), and tearing that went on non-stop for more than 6 hours. Two days later both eyes are still red and irritated. Since this never happened with my previous doctor I know it is not necessarily typical. Not happy & considering a change.

While he may be and excellent doctor, he continually runs two hours late or more for my appointments. This has happened to me on every appointment. I booked my appointment so as o be the first patient he saw after lunch and after waiting an hour after I was examined by his technichions learned that here were two other patients still in front of me. So I left. My time is also valuable as I had to take time off from work and I don't like being mislead. So pack a lunch if you schedule an appointment with him.

I was extremely nervous to see an Ophthalmologist, but Dr. Banker really gave me confidence and put my mind at ease. Dr. Banker did a very thorough examination, immediately figured out what was causing my issues, and took the time to explain my condition to me in a way that I could understand. I would highly recommend Dr. Banker to anyone in need of a great physician who will treat them right!
